Donald Trump Fire and Fury Inside the Trump White House Steve Bannon Michael Wolff Book on Trump White House World News Indian Express

"They all say he is like a child", Michael Wolff said on NBC.

He added: "What they mean by that is he has the need for instant gratification". Yesterday, the Guardian and numerous other media houses were talking about it and that may have been a reason why the book moved so rapidly.

"Henry Holt confirms that we received a cease-and-desist letter from an attorney for President Trump", the company said in a statement to ABC News. He also said he had spoken to Trump since the inauguration.

Excerpts from "Fire and Fury" began to appear online earlier this week, leading to a break between Mr. Trump and his onetime chief strategist, Stephen K. Bannon, who is quoted in the book calling Donald Trump Jr.'s actions during the campaign "treasonous" and "unpatriotic" and insulting Ivanka Trump.

Responding to Trump, Wolff said Friday that Trump isn't one to talk when it comes to credibility.

'Fire and Fury' is on reserve at the Springfield Barnes and Noble.

However, Wolff has been accused of questionable journalistic practices in the past, and Trump and his allies have sought to undermine the book's claims and halt its release.

President Trump on Friday dissed and dismissed Michael Wolff's newly released White House tell-all as a distraction from what he described as the unraveling Russia collusion "hoax". "These conflicts, and that looseness with the truth, if not with reality itself, are an elemental thread of the book". "This book is about Donald Trump". "The man does not read, does not listen. He is like a pinball shooting off the side".

Uttam Dhillon, legal advisor in the White House Counsel's office.

"In what way?" the host responded. "Now it's the same three stories in every 10 minutes". In 2004, The New Republic said the scenes in his columns "aren't recreated so much as created - springing from Wolff's imagination rather than from actual knowledge of events". "I will quote Steve Bannon: 'He has lost it'".

On Thursday, Trump said that Bannon "has nothing to do with me or my presidency".

The book quickly sold out in shops in the US capital, with some even lining up at midnight to get their hands on it and others circulating pirated copies.

The president apparently referred to Bannon as "Sloppy Steve", on Twitter Thursday night.

Still, Wolff defended his latest book as factual on the "Today" show Friday morning.

Donald Trump has hit back at claims over his mental health by insisting he is not only "stable", but also a "genius".

In his best-selling book "Burn Rate", for instance, about his time as an early Internet entrepreneur, Wolff "fabricated" a story about his father-in-law having open-heart surgery.
